The Blue Diamond Group Beautiful Abandonment Garden

Show Gardens

This garden is designed to inspire visitors with its sense of romance and beautiful abandonment. A disused farm building has left its mark in this garden, leaving behind a stone wall with original features forming the backdrop to this repurposed space. A bespoke pergola built from reclaimed oak frames the family seating area, providing character, a sense of age and shade from the sun. The journey through the garden allows visitors to discover different viewpoints of the naturalistic planting with unintentional pockets and the architectural forms of the trees, stone and wooden structure.

The focus is on the innovative use of existing forms to create a functional and informal family space, using reclaimed materials. A considered colour palette of lilacs, pinks, whites and deep reds dresses this garden with an artistic and spontaneous feel.

After the Festival, The Blue Diamond Group Beautiful Abandonment Garden will be relocated, in its entirety, to the Blue Diamond’s Bridgemere Show Gardens at Bridgemere Garden Centre, Nantwich, Cheshire.
